How I See: Introduction

I have just completed a set of posts that describe how I see.   In the group of posts it is important to realize that my physical visual acuity is 20/200.  What you see at 200 feet I need to be at 20 feet to see the same thing.    Generally I function much higher generally around 20/30.    What you see at 30 feet I need to be at 20 feet to see the same thing.

I have a triad of adaptation: Context, Memory Maps, and Closure.   These tools together give me a significant ability to manage the logistical challenges of my disability.  These adaptations are not perfect.   They function well about 60 to 70% of the time and absolutely fail about 15% of the time.    There are many times I am effectively a totally blind person.

However my triad does enhance my abilities and capabilities,  provide me with rich experiences, and the abilities to do really cool things. They also help to keep me safe.
